St. Paddy's Table Decor

Well my Lads & Lasses, tomorrow is the wearing of the green, are you ready? Do you have your outfits picked out? You don't want to be pinched ya? Giggles... I didn't think so. I have my menu all planned out for tomorrows fun at our house. But I wanted to take a moment to share my table top decor with you. The front door entry table has a runner of clovers and sitting on each side is two pictures, one of a pretty lass with an irish blessing & the other frame with its silver and green shamrock says: May you have love the never ends, lots of money and lots of friends! In the center I have three white pitchers filled with pretty flowers, shamrocks and a cute little leprechaun hat pick. In front of the pitchers is my St. Pat's glittered sign.
The table for two starts out with a white tablecloth and black placemats.Then comes my yellow glittered chargers, my white plates with shamrocks, then my kelly green salad plates with white shamrocks,a kelly green glittered bowl on top. Green stemware and flatware, and a pretty yellow napkin, finish up the tableware. My centerpiece is a black pot (that usually holds leprechaun gold) filled with clover, one yellow prim rose & gerber daisy, green hydrangeas, and hiding among the flowers is a cute little leprechaun waiting to cause some mischeif.
and now the table:

I will close this post with an Irish Saying:
May you live as long as you want, and never want as long as you live.

Until Next time...Enjoy!

Leprechaun Lane

The leprechaun has invaded my porch.Paddy O'Martin has decided to come and share his rainbow & pot of gold with us. The pot of gold with its gold coins, are guarded by Paddy who stands quietly to make sure no one steals his gold. The multi-colored mesh mimicks a rainbow falling into Paddy's pot of gold. The doorway garland is also mesh, a emerald & lime green. The black ribbon is entwined throughout to break it up. The sign above the door hails the holiday, along with some shamrocks next to it and through out in two colors. The hats are festive with ribbon, feathers and gold coins. A couple of pipes, vests, horse shoe shamrocks, pots of gold and some cute socks & shoes standing on blarney stones complete this Irish holiday.

I really enjoyed making all these items in my garland, and my door wreath, and hope you do as well. I'll be back with my tablescapes...until then
